My postings have slowed but not the thoughts of you. They are constant. Ever present. Not a day nor an hour goes by without a thought of you. A memory, a lesson...you're always with me. As we approach the 9th anniversary of your passing, I'm filled with dread. All the emotion just floods me and makes me sad all over again. I miss you, Momma. I love you so much.

Mom, I can't stop thinking about you today. It's been three years and I still hear your voice. How odd. And I know that you are still near me...I can feel you at the oddest times and sense your presence but how I long to just hold your hand or caress your hair. You are truly missed. I tried my best to be a good daughter to you everyday. Sometimes I succeeded and sometimes I failed and yet you loved me still. Mom, I slipped a note into your resting place and I have no idea what it says...I was in another place mentally that day but I know somewhere in there I wrote, I LOVE YOU. And I always will.  You are always with me. And today I need to release this sorrow and exchange it for happiness. You would want that for me. Your love was light but this burden of grief too heavy. So I pray you would whisper in God's ear...lighten the load. I love you.

My Darling Mother...my heart aches with the memory of you and though the sadness is always just beneath the surface, I remember you with joy and thanksgiving. You were an awesome mom. The absolute best. I wish you a Happy Birthday in Heaven and I long for just one more time to kiss your cheek and stroke your hair. I hold every moment that we spent together as precious and dear. I will always love you. Happy Birthday, Dear Momma. Love always, Lisa

Momma, I've been really missing you these last few days. I remember so much and I've just been feeling kinda low thinking about you. I know you wouldn't want me to feel this way. You were, and still are, my heart. I love you.

My Dear Mother. I miss you so very much. Happy Birthday, My Angel. I will love you always.

Dearest Mother,
As I sit here and think and remember, I remember you with nothing but love and adoration. You are missed so much by all of us. My heart aches to call you, hear the sound of your voice. You were always so wise. I'm sure Solomon's asking you questions right now. :)  Much love Mommy, Lisa

Hey Mom...I'm thinking of you as always. You were my best friend and I miss you. I just moved about 6 weeks ago and I imagine you seeing my new home and sharing decorating ideas with me.  I know you'd like the house and be so happy for me. I wish you could see it. And I wish you could see Danielle's baby. She'll be 2 in January and getting to be such a big girl. I love you, Mom.

My dear sweet Mommy...how I miss you. You will forever be with me. I still hear your voice in my head. I see you sitting at the table with a glass of Pepsi and a puzzle book, doing what you do best...solving problems. I need to talk to you. Desperately. I miss you.

Dear friend I know you lost the fight but you didn't lose the BATTLE faithful servant. JOHN 5;24 tell me so.

To the Mason children - My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I understand what you are going through but remain strong in your faith. I am sorry that I cannot be with you but know that I am there in spirit and if you need anything I am here. Your mom was special to me.

Dear Momma, I can't believe that we lost you. You were the glue that held us together and kept our feet on solid ground. The overwhelming sadness I feel is beyond my comprehension. Thank you for being the first to love me...you did it well. I love you back. Lisa

My heart, thoughts and prayers have been with Lisa and other members of Mrs. Velma's family during this time of sadness. This is the first time I have seen her picture, and I can immediately tell what a kind and sweet person she was. Love, Melba Wooten :)

There are so many stories that i have of my grandma that there is no room to tell them all!, but one thing that i love to tell about her is her wonderfull personality. my gammy was the most loving, caring woman i kno. She would always help anyone who needed it and had faith in everone to be a good person. She was the most positive and comforting person to be around!, If i had a problem i went straight to her!!! She would always make it better, ALWAYS!... would even rub my head while i cried on her lap! If she saw me struglleing wit tha girlz she would give me her last and even if i wouldnt take it sneak it in my purse! She was my Heart! thereare so many times id call her at 2am and shed be rite there extra chipper ready to talk cuz shed be up playin her sega or doin crosswords or solitair! We would talk about everything from recipes and how long to cook stuff, or me callin to ask if i could still eat sumthin i had in tha fridge foreva lol and she hated them calls i used to scare the mess out her tellin her i'd b fixin to eat sumtin questionable! it became our little joke! jus shootin the breeze wit gammy at 2am was not irregular. But bein around her was alot of fun too, Plain cards, eatin her food, or watchin t.v.!, My favorite things! but watchin her watch jeopardy was amazing! there were so many times she answered all the questions! i swear that lady was a selfmade genius! Man I miss u grandma everthing about u!! Even when i used to get u mad smart mouthin when i was young or drivin to fast once i got grown! But really it was funny to see u mad cuz it was like u wasn't used to bein mad, even when u tried to be firm everybody knew u wouldnt even kill a fly! When i say i knooooow God musta need his angel wen he took u thats tha only thing that keeps me sain. Cuz i swear i almost went crazy but i cant be selfish he had work for u to do.... I guess really i just have to tell all how extraordinary she really was. I swear she is one of the few greatest people ive ever met. I wont ever let u be forgotten i tell my kids about u all the time they still recognize your picture! We Will always love u!! cu soon gammy!

My Memory

Shared by Izetta Sparks on July 14, 2011

Velma C Mason was like my second mom to me she was always there for me no matter what the situation was. She was straight to the point and never beat around the bush.I will always remember her kindness you are gone but not forgotten. I have another memory of her and she would always make my favorite food and that was roast beef and potatoes. I love you and may you rest in eternal peace.
